Here’s why Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein is a failed attempt of Netflix to make a series like ‘Mirzapur’:
It’s like a Gorakhpuria story: In many ways, Akheraj resembles Harishankar Tiwari. The series is based on UP, but the number of vehicles does not belongs to UP.
A clumsy series: This series is a clumsy series as it seems that the makers of the film are unaware about Uttar Pradesh politics.
An average series: It is a one-time watch as the screenplay of the story is quite weak. The characters lose their grip on the storyline. It seems to be a disappointment for audience as they might find it useless to watch all eight episodes of the series.
If you are a fan of series like ‘Sacred Games’ or ‘Mirzapur’ then watch Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein without expecting same drama like those series. Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein fails to deliver a raw and nasty content to its viewers.
